Owing to the growing environmental consciousness, rubbish removal has become a necessity.

For this reason, numerous garbage removal companies have sprung up that have the capability to handle your trash efficiently and proficiently. For your convenience, we have tried to summarize the ABC’s of rubbish removal.

Let’s take a look at it.

Collection Process

This is the first stage of rubbish removal. The entire solid waste is collected in trash cans or dumpsters and transported to the rubbish processing plant via lorries or haulers. Depending upon the kind and quantity, the garbage is either collected manually or with the help of cranes.

Sorting Out Procedure

Urban solid wastes can be broadly divided into 5 categories viz.

Recyclable wastes like paper, glass, plastic, metal cans, and so on
Biodegradable wastes as garden waste and kitchen refuse
Inert waste that primarily consists of construction debris
Assorted wastes like clothing, stuffed toys, and so forth
Hazardous wastes like paints, motor oils, batteries, pesticides, etc.
All these types of refuse have to be treated differently. Therefore, sorting out procedure is very important.

A bit of sorting out is done at the source itself, when different kinds of wastes are collected in different containers like kitchen wastes in a separate trash bin, papers and scraps in another bin, and bottles and can in yet another dumpster. The rest of the rubbish is sorted at the processing plant.

Treatment

Our commentary on the ABC’s of rubbish removal would be incomplete without describing the treatment process.

These days, almost all urban solid wastes are treated by landfilling or land-spreading process. The modern day landfill is an explicitly engineered facility that disposes off all the solid wastes in an environmental-friendly manner.
